While we have reduced our overnight retreats for the 2020 season, we are happy to discuss booking accommodations for a private overnight for you and friends, or adding a night visit to a day retreat.

Quaint and cozy, bright and open, this two-bedroom, one-bathroom house shines with the simplicity of farm life. A large farm table, an open floor plan, retro kitchen, and charming bedrooms with linen duvets and antique pillowcases all create an authentic, soulful atmosphere. The spacious living room features leather club recliners for relaxing at the end of the day.
Perfect for groups of four or more. A short drive offsite, is a charming home features a glorious wrap-around porch for relaxing, chatting, reading, daydreaming. The gorgeous property includes acres of tree-filled pastures and a cheery red barn. The Farmhouse is completely renovated and boasts a large living room perfect for yoga, meditation and parties.
The Farmhouse is not currently available for the 2020 Retreat season.
Guests eat in The Farm Cottage or outdoors under the trees. Our food is healthy, mostly vegetarian, and includes plenty of in-season and locally grown produce, including eggs and cheese. (Please contact us with special health restrictions.)
Many retreats will offer opportunities for extra pampering or adventures, including massage treatments and private trail rides. These must be booked ahead of your retreat, at an additional cost. But, oh, so worth it!
Can Soul Farm accommodate my food preferences?
Our Soul Farm chefs cook from the heart, and heartland cooking is what we do best! Individual preferences may not always be accommodated. If you have a health-related need, please let us know. We will be honest about our capabilities in meeting your needs; please reach out BEFORE you book.

What should I bring to a retreat?
Soul Farm is largely un-landscaped, meaning the ground may be uneven, muddy, or prickly at times. Please bring closed-toed shoes for walks in the woods, waterproof shoes for dewy mornings or rainy days. We provide linens, but you will prefer your own towel. We have natural bug-sprays, flashlights, and other helpful items; stronger bug sprays should be brought if desired. Upon booking, we will send a list of any other needs specific to your retreat.
Will you help me arrange carpooling?
Sure! If you reach out to us, we are glad to assist in connecting you with other attendees to see if carpooling options are available.
Can I room with my friends?
We will do all we can to make that dream a reality! The absolute best way is to book together. You can put multiple reservations and extras in one cart. The system will not allow you to book beds that are no longer available. For that reason, book early!
Do I have to come with a friend?
No, most certainly not. But you most certainly will make friends while here!
What if I do not wish to participate in a planned activity? Or, what if I want to bring a friend who does not wish to participate in all activities?
This is your retreat; if there is something planned that doesn’t set you aquiver with excitement, you can certainly pass and just relax. We cannot shift prices, however, to accommodate different plans. Friends are welcome to register for the retreat and take part in what suits them. (There is always a stall that needs mucking!)
What if the weather is very bad?
Soul Farm is a natural property, so variances in temperature, rain and other conditions must be expected, and we make every effort to assure your enjoyment regardless. However, there are some times we may choose to cancel. Please read more about this here.
Can you tell me specifically where Soul Farm is?
Soul Farm is about 7 miles east of the little town of Amboy, Illinois. Upon booking your retreat, we will send detailed driving instructions.
